People in my games are able to by pass my spam filters by posting this text string





The Text String is invisable but can be created by using HTML Break Right or < br > in your code, it makes a rectangle shaped text icon which I cant seem to block and that is only visable when selected, can anyone help me block these dammed things?

I pasted an example above just after the word string, if you drag and select down from the word string you would have selected the invisiable rectangles I,m talking about.

Sorry if I,ve not explained very well.
Look up html_encode()

mob
verb
Say(a as text)
world << "<b>[usr] said, </b>[html_encode(a)]"

Try that out. Im pretts sure it is something like that.

And HTML_encode wont protect from that simble.

So what on earth will, its a real big time problem, people are able to crash my server with a single msg.

It's decimal is 13, and the text equivalent is \n. Just replace it with \\n.

proc
filter(string)
string = replacetext(string,"\n","n")
string = html_encode(string)
for(var/i = 1 to length(string))
var/ch = text2ascii(string,i)
if(ch in 1 to 31) continue // remove bad ascii characters
. += text2ascii(ch)
proc
replacetext(string,find,replace)
var/pos = findtext(string,find)
while(pos)
string = copytext(string,pos) + replace + copytext(string,pos+length(find))
pos = findtext(string,find,pos)
return string
